I'm the Florida reporter that investigated stolen guns and where they end up. AMA
I'm Laura Morel, a cops and courts reporter at the Tampa Bay Times. During my 10-month investigation into stolen guns in Florida, I found that at least 82,000 guns reported stolen since 2007 in Florida have never been recovered. They’re often taken from unlocked cars, including one Glock that was later used to kill a Florida cop. I also looked at gun shop heists, and how many gun stores aren’t doing their best to lock up their businesses overnight. AMA!
